Paros and Naxos
The sky is hazy. We set sail for Paros and Naxos. Paros is the smaller of two side by side islands. After a down wind sail, we arrive in Paros around 1:30, swim, and have lunch before setting off again for Naxos.
We arrive around 3:00 pm. There are fishing boats and nets on the dock. There is something alluring to me about fishing nets. Almost a work of art.
Russ and I hike to the ruins of a temple
and a castle, weaving our way through small alleys and streets where tiny tables and chairs in the alleys become seats for tiny restaurants throughout the city when the sun goes down and we see more cats than people.
We eat dinner in a traditional Greek restaurant...Eggplant rolls baked around sticks of feta, Greek salad, bread, spicy sausages, french fires, melon, lemon cake, wine and ouzo.
As usual we are the first to return to the boat. We shower and call it a night after another fine day.
